It’s no surprise that during the summer months, while we are busy enjoying the outdoors and vacationing, our sheds and garages may start to get cluttered and unorganized.  We tend to hurry and throw things in there, vowing to spend time another day to organize our spaces.

Fall is a great time to get organized and take inventory of just what might need to be saved or chucked.  Cleaning out your garage or shed might take some time, so plan on saving an entire day to spend on doing a great job.

The first step would be to clear out all of the items in your garage.  This might be a good time to determine if you indeed need a shed for additional storage to help keep your garage roomy enough for your car to actually be parked in it.  Once you have it emptied out completely, you can make piles of what tools or equipment need to go into the shed, and what should remain in the garage.  Keep in mind that you still need to keep enough room for your autos.

Now that the garage is empty, it’s time to give it a good cleaning from top to bottom.  It would be handy if you had a long handled broom or even a dry-vac to get any dust and cobwebs from the upper corners of your garage.  Sweeping and vacuuming the walls, floors, garage doors would give you a good opportunity to notice any areas that might be in need of repair, and will help get any musty odors out.

Many times when you have hooks and racks overhead in your garage, you tend to store things that you will never, ever, reach for again.   The same might be true of shelves on the walls.  This is a good time to take inventory of what you need to keep within easy reach, what you need to toss, and what might need to be stored away in a shed rather than in your garage.  The nice thing about keeping these items in an easy to reach loft in your shed is that they are much more accessible than in the garage.  Take advantage of overhead storage, and when you are in the planning stage of your new shed, think about adding an overhead loft for additional storage.

Organizing your tools by activity or season is one way to put these items back in an orderly manner.  This way you will be able to easily find tools or equipment based on the season’s activity.  Moving the larger equipment like snow blowers and mowers out of your garage and into a shed in an orderly fashion will allow enough room in your garage for parking your car once again.  Designate a corner in your shed for each season.

One way to keep your garage organized is to park in it daily.  A storage shed can easily help you to meet this goal.  You can view a variety of sheds in many different sizes right on our website at Fox Country Sheds.

If you  have any tips on organizing your garage or shed, please share in the comments.

This 2-Car Garage is being “built on site” in the greater Allentown, PA, area by the crew at Fox’s Country Sheds. The weather has not cooperated with us lately, but once it dries up a bit we will be back to finish it off. We think it looks great so far, what do you think?

This particular customer opted to have a taller roof for a 1.5 story garage, built on his poured concrete pad.  Let Fox’s Country Sheds help you design your custom garage, prefabricated and delivered assembled or built on site.

Garages, Fox's Country Sheds

This custom 2-Car Garage is being “built on site” by Fox’s Country Sheds rather than being delivered in two pre-fabricated halves. Did you know that we offer this service for custom circumstances? Contact us for details.

We recently delivered a customized CORNER NOOK shed to a customer in Virginia.  The Corner Nook shed is a 5-sided shed which fits snugly into the corner of your yard.  The customer was so pleased, he shared a photo of the shed in his backyard, as well as a testimonial to the service and craftsmanship he received from Fox’s Country Sheds.

Corner Nook 5-Sided Shed from Fox's Country Sheds, in customer's backyard in Virginia.

Customer testimonial:  “I wanted to let you and your team at Fox Sheds know that we love our five sided (Corner Nook) shed!  It looks great, colors are perfect, the quality of the construction is well beyond any other sheds we have seen, and the configuration has allowed us to get things off the floor and on the walls for more efficient storage.  Also, Dale did a great job navigating the shed through the tight fit to get the shed in place. Attached is a picture of the shed in place.  It’s been a pleasure working with you and thank you for everything!”
– Steve (in Virginia)

These are photos of a double wide garage (that’s a two-car garage) being built in our factory.

We build each section separately when we are working on a larger two-car garage. These photos show the stages of construction in our climate-controlled facility; from the walls and floor being built; the roof being installed, and then finally it is delivered to your property and fastened together by our experienced contractors.

Thinking of adding a garage to your property? Contact us at www.FoxSheds.com or call Fox’s Country Sheds & Structures directly at 717-626-9560. We’ll walk you through each step to make sure that your every need is met for a price you are comfortable with. No BS! Just good, quality service!

Fox’s Country Sheds not only builds sheds, but also specializes in prefabricated or built on site single and 2-car garages.  Many of our customers prefer the prefabricated buildings that we deliver completely assembled.  When we deliver a pre-built two car garage, most often it is delivered in two pieces and the final assembly is done on site where the two halves are joined together.  Other customers of ours here at Fox’s Country Sheds prefer to have their garages built ‘on site’ which means that we will come to your location and erect the structure.  Most times this is when the municipality will only offer zoning approval for a concrete floor garage or poured footers as a foundation. Many times we will need to do a build-on-site if there is no access for a fully assembled structure to be delivered, such as lack of driveway space or other obstacles.

Fox Sheds can build a garage for you either way, whether pre-built completely or built on-site.  Below are a few photos of a custom “build on site” that was done for a customer in New Jersey.  We often have customers from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland and Virginia contact us about building a garage or shed, and of course we deliver what they need!

Be sure to scroll through the slideshow of a custom 2-car garage with a concrete floor, which was “built on site” for our New Jersey customer:

Are we nuts?

I saw a squirrel chasing a nut across the street yesterday, and somehow it struck me as quite ironic.  I’ve admitted before that I hate squirrels (and yes, hate is a strong word), but I was too amused with the scene to think about putting the pedal to the metal and making roadkill out of him.  No, I would never really do that, and I found myself slowing down to let him cross, as I watched, amused.

Interior of Garage built on site from Fox's Country Sheds

Who am I to put the brakes on his goals? It was quite funny because this nut was rolling down the hilly street, and this poor squirrel kept catching up, before it would get away from him again.

What struck me as ironic is the fact that we are all – squirrels and humans alike – chasing something. It might be a dream, it might be a goal, it might be the basic pursuit of happiness. And when we find that “something”, whether real or perceived, we tend to store it away. 

But at what point are we content with what we have? Here it is, springtime, and this squirrel surely would have had enough nuts stored away by now over the long cold winter.  Yet, here was one more that he just needed to have, risking life and limb and bushy tail as he crossed the street in front of my silver four wheeled nutcracker. 

How much stuff is too much?

Setting up the interior of a doublewide garage from Fox's Country Sheds

Where do we put all our stuff?

How do we keep it safe until we need to use it?

 

It reminded me of  when I was actively selling real estate, and buyers and their continued search for that one perfect house – chasing after each new listing and never making a decision.   The perfect house is out there, yet the search continues until they’ve exhausted themselves and their agent.  When do they stop?

It reminded me of myself as an active real estate agent and my continued search for the perfect buyer.  The perfect listing.  The perfect comission split and the perfect broker.  When do we stop?

And real estate sellers aren’t left out of the picture either. A seller who has stored all of his nuts into the equity of his home, only to find out that his cache is not worth as much as he thought. Where’d all that equity go?

I guess all of these thoughts would not have normally crossed my mind at the sight of a squirrel chasing a nut, but it just happened to be right as I was heading to yet another busy day at work at Fox’s Country Sheds. All my thoughts were on the busy day ahead, helping to run a custom storage shed manufacturing business and helping our customers to select the perfect storage shed for all of their nuts. Ahem…stuff. Thoughts of work, shed sizes, shed styles, “did I get the wholesale price lists out to all of our dealers”, “did we get the skylites on order in on time for the potting sheds”, is so-and-so ready for their delivery, etc., along with way too much caffeine in the morning, sparked this vision of us all chasing nuts.  And storing them.

….And thus, you might think I am one (a nut)…… but I’m not.

I’m just storing one.  Or two.  Or several.  Just like you are.

Maybe I’m not a nut – just a pack-rat. Where else can I keep my endless supply of garden hoses, rakes (at last count I think we have about 5 rakes), shovels, unused flower pots, sprinklers, opened bags of potting soil and peat moss…. you get the picture.

But, unlike that squirrely little gray rodent, my stuff is neatly stored in my Heritage garden shed garage.  If you ever wonder what type of shed or garage a shed builder has – this is it!  I lovingly refer to it as my “sh-arage” a cross between a shed and a garage.

After watching this squirrel and his amusing chase, I have to admit ~ I have a newfound respect for that busy little rodent.

But, as roomy as my Heritage Shed garage is – squirrels are not welcome!
